Kim vs. Thiago Wiki Update Wiki

Dong Hyun Kim met Paulo Thiago on the main card of UFC on Fuel TV 6 in the welterweight division.

Round 1

Kim shot in for a single leg at the start of the fight then switched to a body lock trip to get the stubborn Thiago down. Kim took Thiago's back in a scramble and got his hooks in, riding him for the majority of the round and flattening him out, landing some shots to the sides of the head. Thiago fended off the choke several times but nearly tapped to a severe neck crank before being saved by the bell.

Round 2

Thiago landed a glancing head kick early in the second but Kim took the center and looked unconcerned. Kim went for a trip and Thiago locked in a Kimura that Kim escaped, stepping over into half guard. Thiago avoided damage and submissions but Kim was too big and too solid on top, continually thwarting Thiago's attempts to get to his feet. Kim locked in a tight D'Arce choke before the second ended.

Round 3

Thiago easily got a takedown in the third and looked to be on his way to breaking the spirit of Thiago throughout the round, mounting him at the and and landing some big, showy punches from the top en route to a dominating victory.

The judges scored the bout 30-26, 30-27, and 30-27 for Kim, giving him the Unanimous Decision victory.
